Thanks! I've really enjoyed that bike and have done a few crazy things back in the day on mine, too. Shorts, flip flops, helmet, girl in a swimsuit on the back, seeing if it would really run 125, (it would) running from the man, (only twice, didn't want to push my luck!)


Oh yeah, not all of the above at the same time!


Still have trouble keeping the front wheel on the ground for an entire ride, though...

She's a blast to run the rpm up and go through the gears!

We now return to your regularly scheduled programming.

My DR650 got a new (slightly used) Corbin seat tonight and I'm taking off tomorrow to do some scouting.

The engine will start and idle but will not take throttle. Once the throttle is twisted some it will rev a bit and then fall on it's face, not accepting throttle. It's my guess that the diaphram in the carb is bad or leaking and not allowing vacuum to lift the slide.

What say you DR guru's?
Could be the diaphragm but I'd bet on the Pilot Jet. With your experience you should have no prob pulling the carb off and giving it a good clean.
Sometimes grit hangs up in the small Pilot Jet passages, has to be 100% clean to run well.

Parts in the BST Carbs do wear out over time. Slide, Jet Needle. Also maybe pull the needle jet in the float bowl, check for debris and make sure rubber tip is firm and sharp.

Sometimes its cheaper to buy a nice used, low time BST Carb and just put that on. Good luck, hope you get her up and running!

MCMA? I used to be a member in the early 90's. I hear the property is looking good with new trails. Great group of guys!!

Early 90's? Been a member since 1983.

Not the pilot jet as it runs off choke at idle. Just will not accept throttle. I stopped by my buds work while he was taking care of a asshole customer on the phone. I started the bike, turned off the choke and it idled but will not rev up. I told him to check the diaphram for leaks or tears.

If it has the stock petcock, try setting it on prime to rule out a problem with the vacuum petcock.

Maybe it's a WeeStrom thing .... some combination of tire noise and fairing reflections. All I know is that my 705's were quiet when new, but increasingly the front is getting louder, over a broader road speed range. I have about 10K miles on the front with lots of tread left and not noticeable cupping. Anyway, this is the DR thread and so far I'm a happy camper with my front 606 on the DR. Will spoon on the rear in a week or so.

Come Monday morning, I have a "your product has shipped" notice from Procycle. As of yesterday, the Procycle order has arrived and I still haven't heard anything back from the regulatorrectifier.com folks. I'm normally not too fussy about ordering parts, but I do hate seeing my bike up on stands in the garage instead of out riding. So has anyone else had any experience with them in the past?
same bike, exact same problem, order with RegulatorRectifier still pending after more than a week,hate having bike not running. what the hell is up with this run of bad pickup coils?

I didn't read any bad mouthing in his statement/post. It was just a explanation of parts ordering problems for other brands.

Seriously, it's a straight fitting, and it has been updated at least once since Harley went to the current part numbering system (the A at the end.)

I do appreciate all the work that Procycle has done for DR parts, but of all the reasons to bad mouth HD, that's reaching.

yes we are also doing a real chain guide that can take a beating.

here are the prototypes that are working out great, they use the stock perches and work with the OEM brake switches. im also going to include new pivot bolts for guys that are not running the OEM hand guards.



So you are planning on taking the simple cheap DR you fell in love with and making it complicated and expensive, good luck with that.

Really? I think having high quality parts to replace cheesy stock ones with is a bonus in my book.
You definitely wont be interested in any of the stuff I am working on for the DR then.

I'm in for one of the clutch levers when they become available. Tired of busting my knuckles on the stock lever, and I'd like it a bit further from the bar as well.

Don't forget to check the little filter in the carb inlet. Common problem and an easy fix.

After those, 2-up capacity and power and alternator capacity start coming into play. But, I'd prefer not to sacrifice much fuel economy or weight gain if possible.
Amen!...owned a couple of VW Bugs years ago and they had many of the qualities you listed...the DR reminds me of them in a way (in the best possible way ;-)....not many vehicles in current production that have those traits any more (available in the US at least)

Aqualine + Brittania Comp + HDB?

I'm currently running an Aqualine Safari tank and a Brittania Composites fairing without handguards on my 07 DR. My upper bar clamp currently contacts the tank 1/8" before I hit the stock steering limiter. I'd like to add some HDB handguards but I'm concerned their upper clamp might cause further clearance issues.

I know I can't use their "ADV super++extra/etc+ with dashboard" upper, but hoping someone out there might provide input on one of the lower profile units.










Any suggestions on how to easily transfer my current interference issues from tank to limiter would also be greatly appreciated.

And yes thats my Vapor hanging off to the side, cheesy stock clamp broke almost instantly. Looking for a GPS before I start drilling the Brit Comp ABS bit.
